McLaren CEO Zak Brown will miss the British Grand Prix this week after testing positive for the coronavirus.

The British team that features Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo said their preparations for the Formula One race at Silverstone on Sunday would not be affected.

Driver Lando Norris, who contracted the virus while in Dubai in January, and teammate Ricciardo were not considered to be among Brown's close contacts.

"McLaren Racing confirmed today that three team members, including CEO Zak Brown, tested positive for COVID-19 during the team's rigorous testing programme before the British Grand Prix," a statement said.

"Neither of our drivers are close contacts.

"All three cases are unconnected and now isolating in accordance with government guidelines.

"The team's operations for the British Grand Prix are unaffected."
